( KTRS ) More than 100 Republican Missouri lawmakers are calling for a University of Missouri assistant professor to be fired in response to her videotaped clash with reporters during campus protests.
The group of lawmakers sent a letter to the Board of Curators to oust assistant communications professor Melissa Click, on Monday. Click garnered national attention after a video of her confronting a student photographer went viral. She can be heard in the video asking for “muscle” to help remove the photographer.
The student was filming after the university system’s president and the Columbia campus’ chancellor resigned amid protests over racial issues. Some Republican lawmakers say she acted inappropriately.
